Building Bridges, the National Edition
with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
Court Halts NYC Stop-and-Frisk Ruling, Removes Judge
Baher Azmy, Legal Director, Center for Constitutional Rights
On October 31, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted Mayor
Bloombergâs motion to stay the remedial decision in Floyd v. City of New York,
a federal class action lawsuit filed against the NYPD and the City of New York
that challenges the NYPD's practices of racial profiling and unconstitutional
stop-and frisks. They also remanded the case to the District Court to assign a
new judge. Weâll discuss what this decision means for the continuation of stop
and frisk, the concerted, pernicious manifestation of racial stereotyping and
criminalization of entire communities and whether judge Shira Scheindlin, who
merely made public statements in which she answered critics of her ruling,
was targeted for rebuke and removal from the case.
